Panel on Androgen Deprivation Therapy: A Closer Review of the Cardiovascular Risk – Summary:

Thomas E. Keane, MD, Professor and Chairman of the Department of Urology at the Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, leads a panel discussion including Lawrence I. Karsh, MD, Peter J. Rossi, MD, and Neal D. Shore, MD, FACS, to discuss the process of treating prostate cancer in a patient who is at risk for cardiovascular disease and how extra care is needed in such cases. They also stress the importance of being in contact with a patient’s PCP even if one chooses to do their own assessment of patient risk, as well as when ADT should not be considered an option, such as in the case of a patient with significant CAD and elevated liver enzymes. The group, over the course of the panel, discuss the many ADT options available, including their strengths and weaknesses.
